Many Canada Day celebrations across the nation have been snuffed out this year due to COVID-19, including a popular Greater Victoria attraction.
Parks Canada has cancelled its celebrations for Canada Day, on the country’s 153rd birthday, at the Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites.
All historic buildings, the lighthouse, and the welcome centre are among a few of the amenities that will be closed during the holiday. A few public washrooms will remain open, but all interpretive programming and special events have been cancelled until further notice.
Visitors are still allowed to drop by the historic sites, as some outdoor spaces are still open, including the beach, nature trail and upper, lower and Belmont battery.
Notably, the oTENTik spaces will remain closed for the rest of the 2020 camping season.
